    get

    Create functions for use with functional methods like map, reduce, filter, etc. that get object properties without need of anonymous wrappers.

    Installation

    Browser

    $ component install timoxley/get
    

    See Components

    Node

    $ npm install timoxley-get
    

    Sorry for namespaced package, all good names taken.

    Examples

    Before:

    Horrible anonymous wrapper is required to map the length property.

    ['apple', 'banana', 'pineapple'].map(function(str) {
     return str.length
    })
    // => [5, 6, 9]

    After

    Wow. Much cleaner.

    ['apple', 'banana', 'pineapple'].map(get('length'))
    // => [5, 6, 9]

    Use get to evaluate methods

    // Calls the 'italics' method on each supplied item
    ['apple', 'banana', 'pineapple'].map(get('italics'))
    // => ['<i>apple</i>', '<i>banana</i>', '<i>pineapple</i>']

    Use get to evaluate methods, passing in arguments

    // Calls the 'substr' method, passing in arguments
    ['apple', 'banana', 'pineapple'].map(get('substr', 0, 1))
    // => ['a', 'b', 'p']

    Convoluted Description:

    Takes a property name, prop along with any number of additional arguments, and returns a function, that takes an object of any type, and returns the value of prop on that object. If prop is a method, the returned value with be the result of evaluating that method, passing in the the additional arguments.

    Turns out this is hard to describe.
